What wetsuit for J-Bay in Aug/Sept? 3/2 or 5/4

« on: July 14 2005 07:07:00 »

Group of Irish surfers headin to J-bay in Aug and wondering what the water temp will be like.
Is it 3/2 territory or more like 5/4 wintersuit with boots??
Being from Ireland we are used to the cold but need to bring the right suit for the job!!
Cheers folks

Hi Cathal,

I've just got back to the UK from surfing J Bay.  You'll be fine with a 3/2. The locals think it's fairly cold (mixed bag of 3/2 & 4/3 surfers).  But you'll find the water warm.  

Make sure you make a trip to Walskipper for a big hearty meal after the surf.  Enjoy your trip!

I live quite close to j-bay and i recommend that you take a short sleeve 3/2 with as well because it saves some paddle power. Its a damn long paddle bro. The water is usually never that cold. Its just the offshore that bites your tits.

thats a tricky question, I'm from Cape Town and surfed J-bay in June in a 3/2 and was too warm but I guess its because I'm used to 10 degree water.
Take a 3/2 and you'll be fine
